A few days ago, I mentioned that the trees here go from green to brown. It is in October that I really long for New York. Kansans just don't know what trees look like. (Well, obviously they do, but not in the quantity or size that I am talking about.) The best way to describe it is this: when you drive around here and you get to the edge of town, you see a field with a few trees. When you drive around in New York and you get to the edge of town, you trees - no empty space at all.
ANYWAYS, the next day Hubs told me that our tree was turning red. Sure enough; I have a tree with red leaves in my very own yard!! What a great little gift God has given me! What is even more exciting is that we can rake them up when they fall.
This fall, time is flying by. We are 7 days into October and I am very excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. Unlike other years, however, I am not so excited for the upcoming holidays that I am missing out on the rest of the days. This fall, I am waking up and enjoying today, October 7th.
I am enjoying the brisk morning and the smells of fall. I am relaxing with a cup of hot whatever. We are spending times with friends and making lots of memories. Whether it is because Hubs is out of school or we are on our own, we are just enjoying the season, without regrets or wishes.
Wow, I just deleted a whole bunch of rambling mumbo jumbo. Be happy that I did and enjoy the day that the Lord has made.
